STENCIL SNOWFLAKE COOKIES/ Baby Cousin



What do you think is the likelihood of having two daughters-in-law with the same name? My guess is fairly unlikely. I have a friend whose two sons both married girls named Heather. It is such a pretty name but who knew it was so popular.

Awhile back I made Owl Cookies for Heather’s baby shower while she was expecting Mason, who now is big brother to Holden and a new sibling arriving soon. Add to the excitement the anticipation of the arrival of their girl cousin due this spring. This baby girl is the first for Heather H. Are you following me?… keeping the Heathers straight? No matter … lots of memories yet to be made with these darling angels.


Heather’s baby shower had a winter theme with snowflake cookie favors in pink and gray to match the nursery colors. My original plan was a cookie with a pink background and gray detail but instead went with varying shades of the same color. To emphasize the winter theme, look closely and you will see stenciled snowflakes.

BEST WISHES TO HEATHER AND JESSE AWAITING THEIR PRECIOUS BABY GIRL.

These vibrant Plaid Cookies were fun to make using a stencil and airbrush machine.

CHRISTMAS BELL COOKIES/ December



It’s the fastest month on the calendar or it seems that way. There is so much to do with decorating, shopping, wrapping, baking, etc. I am way behind with only ten days to go, so this post is brief. The Christmas cards are in the mail and holiday shopping nearly finished. The tree stands bare but is on today’s ‘to do list’ and should be lit and adorned with ornaments by nightfall. At least that is the plan. The shiny, new cookie tins are waiting to be filled but not one cookie has been baked yet. To my nieces and nephews, do not fret as you know Aunt Joan always comes through with the goodies! So guess what I’m doing the next few days. I cannot disappoint and must get to the kitchen. Now, come see how I made these glittery Christmas bell cookies.
